Track Name: Friends As Ghosts
There are pains
and times of grace
and times when I
can't see your face

I have many
friends as ghosts
but you're the ghost
I miss the most

And so I ambled
to your grave
and found where
your white bones lay

My phantom girl
my dark specter
My tree spirit
What have you become

When I wake
to your lost call
I know I must
have dreamed it all

I have many
friends as ghosts
you're the ghost
I miss the most
Track Name: Ravello I
Music from the world of 'Friends as Ghosts'
Track Name: You Are Lost
You are lost
return to me
either by the air
or across the sea

Those briars, weeds and brambles
they never held up well
beneath the blinding snow fall
or the spewing of the well

We came through the thicket
scratched, unscarred and whole
I lured you out from bridge
you effervescent troll

Does your hair still tumble?
Is there black paint
on your toes?
Come back to
these pine tree hills
and forget all
those fading thrills
Track Name: Ravello II
Music from the world of 'Friends as Ghosts'
Track Name: Trees
Run through
Run through
the forest

The trees
the trees
restore us

Canopy
Canopy
shielding us
from the burning sun
Where we fell
upon the moss
and ferns and
stunted shrubberies

Who are you to say
goodnight to the stars?

The leaves
obscuring us
Your prints
Left in soil

Who are you to say
goodnight to the stars?

Under brush
clipped, muted
undergrowth
woodland love

You, in the trees
Me beneath
In case you fell
Like a ripened peach

And when our moon
Peeks out from the clouds
I hear you say
aloud

Our nights
our trees
our times

I don't want
the end of the night
Track Name: Ravello III
Music from the world of 'Friends as Ghosts'
Track Name: The Visitor
Tendrils of you
appear in the fog
You sit as a great black crow
on rotted log

Ferns turn blue
Fruits decay
Sun shines pink
Into lovely
quicksand of yours
I then sink

A light through
the keyhole
a sighing
dove speaks at dawn

Far off call
echoes now
a trumpet!
Shipwrecked emerge!

The shoal swarms
Surrounding
Emerald coat
they shout your name!

Skeleton
Onyx curves
Walnut husks
Obsidian

I sat by
the shoreline
Awaiting
your return

Instead whales
waved at me
the ocean
was the sky

the shoreline
was a snake
I rode for
miles at dusk

Shore snake said:
"Run, my boy!
Flee the beach
Pluck yourself
a ripe peach!"

When I looked
the clouds became
the rusted hooks
of shipyard cranes
So I ran
far from shore

but then I find
myself awake
under the stars
Dream world now fades
visitor gone
yet peach in hand
her signature
traced in the sand
Track Name: Ravello IV
Music from the world of 'Friends as Ghosts'
Track Name: How Fell The Fall
I rose from
fantasy
To leaves down
scattered forth
Reds and greens
cloaked the porch
Wind now sharp
I stood still
Leaves flew by

How fell the fall
my dear
Autumn days here
so steer
Your ships away
into
A calmer bay
today

Like an ash curl
shattered on the
tips of fingers
delicate, gone

The remains of
scintillating
lost furnaces
all that's left is

scents of timber
long burned to dust
Soon the winter
shakes my marrow

Fleeting moments
brilliant colors
sunsets matching
the foliage

You, in the trees
Me beneath
In case you fell
Like a ripened peach

And when our moon
Peeks out from the clouds
I hear you say
aloud

When I wake
to your lost call
I know I must
have dreamed it all

There are pains
and times of grace
and times when I
can't see your face

I have many
friends as ghosts
but you're the ghost
I miss the most
Track Name: Ravello V
Music from the world of 'Friends as Ghosts'. The entrance into the world of 'Res Non Verba'...
